So what did you do today?

I'm trying to get together a figure/model/doll/thing for my 'little people' project.  Here's what I came up with today.

Probably the best smell in the world

I'm looking at designing my own 'little person' that will probably either look like me,  have my personality or a version of personality.  It's a work in progress but I figured the best way to get my idea from a feeling to something a bit more substantial I need to play around with it... and yes that means 20 tubs of Super Rainbow colours.  With accessories.  Fantastic.

The time  has finally come after 4 long years for my final major project to begin.  Worth 50% of my degree it's safe to say I am shitting it.  The kind of things I am looking at are miniature figurines set into every day situations, looking closely at scale and the things in life we take for granted.  Inspiration from 'Marcel the shell with shoes on' which does not fail to make me laugh again and again.

You've probably seen the street artists Slinkachu's 'Little people in the big city.'  These are a couple of my favourites and how great is this, an exhibition next week?  Hell yes.
